Leicester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is aiming for a reunion with David Beckham.

The Daily Star Sunday says Beckham will be invited to swap LA Galaxy for Leicester when the MLS season comes to a close after Foxes boss ­Eriksson was given the green light to make the cheeky bid.

He has tried before to take the England superstar on loan but this time he has the financial clout to boost City's chances of gaining promotion to the Premier League.

Leicester's billionaire Thai backers King Power are ­determined to help Eriksson guide the Championship ­outfit - the bookies' joint promotion favourites - to the top flight.

And they have sanctioned a swoop for Beckham, 36, in the January transfer ­window.
